Why the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Firebird is priced so low


Summer of 1977 was dominated by two things, Star Wars and Smokey and the Bandit. While no one could go out and buy a Millenium Falcon, a quick trip to your Pontiac dealership would have out seated behind the wheel of Burt Reynold's 1978 Pontiac Trans Am Firebird in less than an hour. 40 years later car enthusiasts everywhere still love this car even though it only puts a mere 220 hp. Built more for volume than speed, the '78 Trans Am is still available for a shockingly low sticker price compared to other muscle cars made famous in films from the '60s and '70s.
